Anybody experience this with their 06 S3?

It indicated correctly this morning when it was low, filled tank, rode about 15 miles. After a short stop the low fuel light remains lit.

Any help or pithy comments from Limey would be appreciated.

More than likely the plug has a bit of corrosion on it from moisture.

Remove your tank, unplug the fuel pump/level sender plug and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser (they are kind of hard to get at). You can also use contact cleaner for a really good job.

Sometimes just unplugging and plugging it back in a few times will clean the contacts.

I hope this helps.

My 05 does this now and again. Full fuel tank, but the low fuel light wants to stay lit. What works best for me is to simply shut the bike down for a few seconds and start it back up. The light goes out and I have no more problems. For a month or so.

Believe it or not that is the first thing I tried (considering my 242 lbs, I always come down pretty hard!) as I figured it wasn't working with me pounding on the back of the tank. I'll have to try again tomorrow... "if at first you don't succeed" :cool:

Anyhow, thanks for the comments and suggestions, pithy and otherwise!
